The module introduces you to a range of central themes and issues that both classical and contemporary social theorists have addressed in their work, all with the view of equipping you with a broad range of conceptual tools with which to understand and research the social world. The thematic structure of the module will enable you to understand, as well as encourage you to assess, the contribution theoretical traditions and paradigms under discussion can make to the analysis of those themes.
